Skill TS4 Baking
Baking is a skill in The Sims 4: Get to Work. It is similar in many ways to the cooking skill, except that the related recipes are all baked goods.


Sims can build baking skill by reading a skill book, using the cupcake factory to "Bake Pastries", or by making any dish under the "Bake" option on a fridge or oven. As with the cooking skill, Sims unlock more recipes the higher they build their baking skill. Almost all baking recipes are suitable for vegetarians[CL], except for Fish Pie, Shepard's Pie, Salmon Croquettes, Soft Shell Crab Cake, and Bacon Wrapped Doughnuts.


Unlike cooking, baking offers only one unlockable ability. At level 3 Sims gain the ability to decorate cookies, cakes and cupcakes to increase their quality. This costs §10 and improves the value of the dish by 50%. This option is only available on cakes made under the "Bake" options.
